Dear Sir,

Following is our product description about MCL 3.0.  We can send additional information by post (please send us your address), or you can visit our WWW site (see address below).

Macintosh Common Lisp 3.0 (MCL)

A powerful, object-oriented dynamic programming language fully integrated with the Macintosh.  MCL completely supports all of Common Lisp as specified in "Common Lisp: the Language", 2nd edition, by Guy Steele (CLtL2).  It includes: an incremental compiler for Common Lisp and the Common Lisp Object Systesm (CLOS); fully integrated emacs-like editor; debugger and inspector; smart Lisp programming tools; and an extensive library of CLOS objects including Macintosh user interface objects. Macintosh Common Lisp provides users with a rich set of OODL attributes making it especially well-suited for rapid prototyping, custom development for business and education, scientific and engineering applications and academic research. 
With MCL, you get full access to the Mac toolbox, an object-oriented framework and interactive interface builder for rapid design, and a cd-rom with over 120Mb of free contributed code and documentation. You can build stand-alone double-clickable Macintosh applications that run in under 2Mb of RAM, on any Macintosh (Mac Plus or better, system 6.0.7 or better). 
MCL 3.0 will only create applications designated as "Lisp Development Systems".  MCL Distributable Applications can only be created using the MCL utility MCL-AppGen.  Applications created using MCL-AppGen will be nominally 500-800K smaller than their Lisp Development System Counterparts.  These applications will not include the debugging tools (trace, step, backtrace, etc.), development tools (apropos, edit-anything dialog, etc.), Listener, and compiler, hence the nominal savings.  A MCL Distributable Application can also optionally not include Eval, macros, and some other modules, hence the greater possible savings.
System requirements: A Macintosh computer with at least 4 MB of RAM and 6 MB of disk storage. Macinotsh System Software v. 6.0.4 or later. A CD-ROM drive is required.
